The Clampetts, better
known as the Beverly
Hillbillies, have landed
in New Zealand.
While they are even further
from the Ozark Mountains than
they were in Beverly Hills, they
are taking comfort from the

Drysdale does everything he
can to keep his new clients in
Beverly Hills -- and their $25

Stewart, 53, remembers the

enjoyed it and the reruns. The

Hayden Giles plays Drys-
dale s secretary Miss Hath-
away, whom Giles describes as
an old-maid type dedicated to
her job and her boss.
In the television show Miss
Hathaway was tall and slender,
with no bust, so Giles reckons
he has a physical resemblance.
He is not playing the role

plays a woman but everyone
knows he is a man.
Instead Giles is taking a
straight-laced approach, shav-

Leith Marshall said he got
involved in the play as he had
heard good things about
Pahiatua Repertory Society and
friends were involved in it.
The 47-year-old is the IT

people who look after me .
He plays Midland Oil s law-

Stewart said the play was not
all gags -- it has a story running
through it too.
The trio are motivated by the
fun they are having.
Giles said he forgets about
the woes of the world when he
puts on that bra and becomes
someone else. Rugby is some
people s team sport, but his
team sport is acting.
It s like a drug: you get
hooked on it.
